Start your work week right by doing something wild! Today we are urging all our supporters to take a few minutes to do a good deed for the wildlife, wild lands, and historic sites that share our planet. We would love for you to share that good deed on our Facebook event page so that we can inspire people around the world to join us!
What will your day of service look like? Will you put out hummingbird feeders? Install stickers on your windows to reduce bird collisions? Pick up garbage in your local park? Sign a petition in support of wildlife crossing structures? Volunteer for a community science project? We can’t wait to hear from you!
Here at Rocky Mountain Wild, we will be working with our friends at El Laboratorio to check wildlife cameras for the field season and to transfer the cameras to their program so that they can monitor wildlife along the South Platte River in Denver!
Not sure what you can do? We have a list of suggestions below!
Here are some suggested things to do:
- Sign Conservation Colorado’s petition to reduce pollution and tackle climate change! Urge your state representative to support House Bill 21-1286.
- Sign Conservation Colorado’s letter to Governor Polis stating that Coloradans want climate action now. Ask him to support Senate Bill 200.
- Sign our petition in support of wildlife crossing structures in Colorado. Help us persuade decision-makers to prioritize and build wildlife crossing structures at critical locations throughout Colorado, including across I-70 at Vail Pass.
- Take action with Food & Water Action and send a message to your representative asking them to help fight climate change by co-sponsoring the Green New Deal for Cities Act (HR 2644).
- Take action with NRDC and tell Congress to get lead out of our drinking water.
